Oop You all posted so quickly lol
What are you having in Costa Tamo?

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 02:14 PM

It's usually super quiet here in the afternoons!

[Luna] 26-08-2021 02:16 PM

What are you up to today Beckie?

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 02:17 PM

Absolutely nothing!
I'm preparing myself for 3 days of work in a row.
On the 3 busiest days and times of the week!

[Luna] 26-08-2021 02:19 PM

Wow, sounds intense. Hope you get loads of rest in the lead up. Are you managing to eat anything?

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 02:22 PM

Yep!
Thanks.
Yes I am. Been doing a lot of quick meals.
And if I got really desperate I could get something at work like garlic bread and nibble on it in quiet times!
I don't get a break on the shifts I'm doing but lots of people have food in the kitchen or glass wash to nibble on

[Luna] 26-08-2021 03:23 PM

That’s good. I’m pleased you’re managing to get some food. It’s important when you’re busy.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 03:30 PM

Yes definitely! I have felt dizzy there quite a few times and obviously do not want to pass out in front of anyone!
Would be so embarrassing!

EDIT: uber is now a thing here so if I don't want to walk home, getting a taxi is going to be so much easier!

tamobhuuta 26-08-2021 03:52 PM

That's good news Cacoethes.

I had a chai latte, my favourite.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 03:57 PM

Sounds good tamo!

one_step_closer 26-08-2021 04:11 PM

Yum cheesecake. I hope L has a nice birthday and you enjoyed your Costa Tamo.

Hi Luna, I hope your day is going ok.

I hope your CPN comes at a suitable time Dawn. Sorry you're still feeling unwell.

You're getting all the good things in your area Beckie, McDonald's Delivery and Uber!

I was having lunch in a new cafe and wellbeing centre that is run by the organisation that provides me with practical support. I'm supposedly part of the advisory and the boss wanted us to have lunch and a tour around the place so hopefully soon the advisory starts up again. I don't even want to be on the advisory. I struggled the whole way through even though it was informal and I was with two of the service users who I class as friends.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 04:17 PM

Yes we are! My town is finally joining the 21st century!

That sounds tough lindsay
Can you do something nice for yourself now it's over?

one_step_closer 26-08-2021 05:15 PM

I'm eating crispy m&ms!

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 05:31 PM

Ooooh they're my favourite type of m&ms!

not_so_insig 26-08-2021 05:33 PM

My cpn came. Thanks for the well wishes Lindsay. I am slowly getting better.

one_step_closer 26-08-2021 06:25 PM

What's everyone having for dinner? I don't feel hungry because of my lunch out so I think I'll just finish my M&Ms.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 06:41 PM

I've had a McDonald's.
They were out of milkshakes so I have a raspberry lemonade. It is very strong!

nonperson 26-08-2021 07:19 PM

It's been in the news loads about how Macdonald's are out of milkshakes. =o

I want M&Ms now!

I've got leftover pasta bake for dinner.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 07:23 PM

Yep!
Bloody brexit

Pasta bake is yummy!

tamobhuuta 26-08-2021 07:23 PM

We're having Chinese.

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:26 PM

I want a chinese.
I’ve got a mushroom stroganoff pie and chips and bok choi for dinner. Also chocolate but I ate it.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 07:28 PM

I haven't had a Chinese in ages!

Sounds nice Lio!

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:32 PM

I planned to take my meds with dinner (because I’ve been awake too long) then use the hour before I went to sleep to pop to the pharmacy but then I remembered that the reason I need to pop to the pharmacy is because I’ve run out of meds. **** my life.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 07:32 PM

Oh noooo D:

nonperson 26-08-2021 07:41 PM

Can you still get them, Elmer?

I want Chineeeese and chocolate =(

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:43 PM

Pharmacy’s open til 10 but have scuppered my plans to take them with dinner :P

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:46 PM

Aaaaand I’ve dropped dinner all over the carpet.

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:48 PM

There’s a chip stuck in the wheel of my chair

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:48 PM

Mayonnaise everywhere.

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:49 PM

I just yelled “****” loud enough for the neighbours to hear

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:49 PM

It’s all gone wrong guys.

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:49 PM

There’s stroganoff on my socks.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 07:51 PM

Eeek!
It is not going well for you this evening!
It can only get better from here? Surely!

nonperson 26-08-2021 07:52 PM

I... honestly don't know whether to laugh or not.

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:52 PM

I do hope so. I’m not proud but I salvaged most of it and am eating it anyway.

Come at me.

tamobhuuta 26-08-2021 07:53 PM

Disaster dinner!!!

Yep.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 07:58 PM

I'd do the same Lio!
Can't be wasting any food!

Elmer 26-08-2021 07:58 PM

Right??? That pie was expensive.

nonperson 26-08-2021 07:58 PM

I'd have eaten it too.

Elmer 26-08-2021 08:07 PM

Having rage eaten my slightly unpleasant dinner far too quickly, I am off to the pharmacy.

Elmer 26-08-2021 08:13 PM

Scratch that, there’s a cat on my back.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 08:15 PM

Oh no!
You can't move a cat!
It's the law!

Elmer 26-08-2021 08:42 PM

The cat removed himself and the pharmacy gave me my meds without a fuss! The evening is looking up.

nonperson 26-08-2021 08:44 PM

You need a nice dessert to make up for it.

Elmer 26-08-2021 08:50 PM

Oooh, yes. I might do that with my meds when I eventually take them

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 08:55 PM

Good plan!

I am craving butterscotch angel delight

Elmer 26-08-2021 09:01 PM

Oh my GOD. I miss angel delight. We used to have it at Guide camp, the different flavours had different chopped up chocolate bars in. We called it Martian Pudding.

Cacoethes 26-08-2021 09:03 PM

That sounds so good!

I usually layer it. So I have chocolate on the bottom and butterscotch on the top.
My mum used to do it when we were kids!
